Life has its seasons. This reality dawned on me when my pastor prayed that God would strengthen me “in this season of life.” Mother was ill and my sister and I were taking turns keeping her in her home while she recovered. Since then, I’ve watched and recognized life’s seasons for myself and those around me. Life’s seasons include our own childhood, which, hopefully, we look back on with fond and funny memories.“When I .
There’s nothing quite like being wanted. It feels good to be welcomed, doesn’t it? We walk into a room, and someone across the way smiles, and we’re put at ease.

And the most welcoming place in Old Colorado City is Horse Alley Studio, home to Dusty Shutt Silver Jewelry. Whether you’re shopping for yourself, .
Do you remember your mother’s jewelry box? Was it wooden, or padded cloth? Was it tall and narrow, or shallow and wide? Did it sit on her dresser, or was it on the bathroom counter?

Italian charm bracelets were all the rage a few years ago. Each charm had its own story. Unique and personal. I loved mine. And I enjoyed asking others why each charm had been chosen, learning deep and interesting things about the one who wore the bracelet. Charm bracelet wearers were easy to buy gifts for, too. You recalled something special in her life, bought a charm to fit the occasion, and viola! you were .
Spring! Ah, it’s finally arrived. Baby birdies and fluffy bunnies and new buds bursting out everywhere. We’re ready to fling into Spring by opening our windows to let in the warm breezes. And we’re ready to lighten ourselves up as well. We’re ready to let our red toenails see the light of day. Ready for a change of hair style or at least a trim. New, fresh, revived – these are the mantras of .
We’ll unabashedly admit it: few things are as satisfying as having someone offer an ooh or an aah over something we’re wearing. Good compliments are just that – satisfying. Reinforcing our good taste and right choice. We can all appreciate recognition of the effort we put into our appearance. Such acknowledgement is sweet reward, indeed. Want a guaranteed collection of oohs and aahs when you step out? Choose to wear a stunning and .

Riley wrote, “They’s something kindo’ harty-like about the atmusfere .
